the ricin case. just learned this now, pete williams is reporting that two federal officials say a suspect has been arrested in the case of those letters that initially tested positive for ricin. officials identify the subject as kenneth curtis of mississippi and may appear in court later tonight. two letters were intercepted, one to president obama and one to roger wicker. let me go back to you on this, clint. what do you make of this case? there's something about these bombings where they seem to lead to -- it just seems to -- like snakes travel in pairs, we get the ricin case and cases like these. >> he signed the letters, this is kc and i approve this message. that doesn't take a whole lot of heavy lifting to match up this guy whose name you just said in the initial kc. i think it's logical to find out that it's probably not ricin. it's probably another false positive. in this abundance of caution especially because of boston, you have to take these things serious. was there any connection between the two, likely not. >> i think somebody stirs up the nuts in cases like this bec

get him caught there and talk. >> let's go to pete williams in washington. >> body found in a boat and, as you know, they have sent in the s.w.a.t. teams and the bomb teams i assume as a precaution to make sure that the situation is indeed over but we don't have an identity on the body. we don't know who it is. we don't know whether the body is a result of the shooting. that would seem to be the logical conclusion, though. >> yeah, pete. right where they are in watertown, the charles river takes a kind of dramatic dip to the south. it does widen there but to your point, you're absolutely right. a lot of people have boats on trailers in their yards, not quite the season for that yet. and then again, there's always a lot of activity on the charles river, the scale of this map is too broad to zoom in with any specificity. >> the other thing that stands out to me and i'm sure to you, just looking at the pictures here, they certainly contrast with the pictures that we've seen earlier today, for example outside the house, where everyone was in a tactical position for a long time. this is

don't think we know how many devices there were other than two. >> pete williams is with us with more on the investigation. it's your beat now. the fbi. >> let me pick up on that. we still don't know how many explosive devices there were. we know that two went off. there could have been others because packages found on the street were deemed suspicious. they were destroyed but we haven't heard any confirmation on whether at least five other packages actually were explosive devices. some officials say there is reason to think at least a few of them were but we still don't have confirmation on that. that's number one. number two, there is no suspect in custody. however, there are some people that the investigators are very interested in talking to. one of them is a young person who had a student visa who has burns and was seen running from the area. now, of course many people were running from the area and some were injured. so what particular reason there is to be interested in this person, we're not sure of. but nonetheless, that person is being aggressively questioned now. offic

williams and former cia counterterrorism director larry johnson. two best guests we could have. pete, let's go back to that picture we just saw from whdh up there, boston affiliate of nbc. what are the experts making of the fact that it was there, that bag, whatever it is sitting there before the explosion and then in this picture taken afterwards you can see the smoke trailing up to the left there diagonally? what does that tell us? >> it tells us it's something they're investigating, chris. they know, they believe very strongly that the bombs were brought to the scene in backpacks. but i think it's fair to say they're looking at whether after they got there, they put them in these shopping bags. now, that thing next to the -- to the bag that's just on the edge of the little spot shot circle there, that is a trash receptacle. could it be? it's a question. could it be the devices were placed in these trash bags next to trash receptacles to look inconspicuous? it's something that they're -- that they're studying and something that is a possibility. they don't know. but it's certainly

reports, we got one from pete williams a few minutes ago that the fbi has been getting names called in. they don't have a matchup yet. where do you think things are going? >> they are getting names called in and jonathan mentioned about running through the databases. that's going to be one of the first steps. they are going to get names and run it through all of the logical databases and see what flushes out. if they get further information, dates of birth or an address, then they will take it to the next logical step. things like looking for phone records, utility bills, anything that can help coop great the information called in and then just, you know, they will keep pulling on that thread until they figure out yes we need to go to the next step or this is washed out. the person is not the right, you know, age or whatever. but they are going to keep pulling strings until they find the person that they are looking for. >> don, your thoughts about what's going on right now at the operating center. >> well, i think there's a lot of things going on. i like the concept of yeah, they a

other networks are doing this. luckily we have pete william here to guard the truth and make sure we get it right. but other networks without pointing to anybody, they have had the problem, federal officials, i'm looking through all the clips. maybe just one, maybe a very busy federal official has been running around today telling news people and major networks and wire services, hey, look, they made an arrest. how did that happen, clint? who is this person that says i know they did. hard fact. >> number one, yeah, it shouldn't have happened. we don't know who it was. but, look, when you get that many agencies involved, somebody's looking to make points. unfortunately, the points they make could compromise an investigation. but when you have upwards of 60 different agencies involved in a case like this, loose lips can sink a case. >> you think it's possible there has been someone as you say in pocket or what's the -- do you think this person has been narrowed down to? do they have the person in a case or they have them in some sort of contained circumstance they can't get away? is th

we have on the record now, thanks to pete williams, we have the fact two men seen carrying heavy bags near the site of the bombings. if this comes into vision now, pictures we've been looking at on the internet of people actually putting bombs down and leaving, they're more to the civilian eye than just people of interest. they look like they're the guys. that's the way people are going to look at it. the civil liberties aspect to this, if you put a picture out of a person saying, pretty much we think these people are involved, somehow, perpetrators, and somebody shoots them or chases them down, something, an accident happened, for example, the government is taking responsibility for this once they put the pictures out. >> i think they are. they have to. at the end of the day, there comes a point in time where obviously they could not identify these individuals with all the other potential pieces of information they had. so do they eat their lunch at a particular place? rent an apartment? do they socialize with a particular group? frankly it says to me they did everything they co

, in this case, 2, to wreak such hell. >> and you look and you wonder if pete williams has done an extraordinary job reporting this, is correct, that they got spooked because this police officer stumbled upon them as they were, perhaps, trying to rob that 7-eleven and that's what triggered this. what if, what were they planning to do be the bombs and guns if they didn't encounter that police officer and shoot him and kill him at pointblank range in his vehicle and sparked the wild night last night? were they planning something else? were they planning their grand finale? who knows. you bring this point up. look how many plots new york city has faced since 9/11 in expensive car bomb plots and targeting the brooklyn bridge and how close we have come time and again. sometimes law enforcement has just done great work in terms of tracking these plots before they happen. other times it's sheer luck. but you look on the time that they got through in boston, look what's happening to that city. look what happened to those poor people. >> right. already. the economic cost, by the way. let me
